ARISTOPHANES IN A NUTSHELL!
BY THOC - LIVE
A Glance into the rehearsals of the production "Aristophanes in a nutshell!" written and directed by Cypriot artist Costas Silvestros. Broadcasted live from the O18 Stage (Children's Stage) of the Cyprus Theatre Organisation. In Greek with subtitles in English.
And you, my friend, come and become an Aristophanes!
The creative force for this year’s theatre season of Stage 018 is in the middle of feverish preparations, undertaking the spirited task to introduce to us the mythical world of Aristophanes, through the staging of an original synthesis, based on selected works of the great poet.
Aristophanes’ comic heroes experience big and small adventures and we will gain the wisdom from their suffering, while misunderstandings will be adding the necessary comic salt and pepper to this hilarious performance.
The spirited and noisy band of the director unfolds the talent of its members, while they undergo transformations, they feast with music, dance and singing, ready to share with our young and elder friends, unique moments of laughter.
